CAMP’s Annual Technical Meeting
CAMP’s Annual Technical Meeting was held May 16 - 18, 2012, at the Holiday Inn in Albany, New York. The objective of this meeting was to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas and information between university and industry researchers involved in fine particle processing and nanotechnology and related colloid and surface aspects as well as applications. It included representatives of Industry, University, and New York State Economic Development Organizations. The keynote speakers were Ed Reinfurt (Director of the Division of Science, Technology, & Innovation, Empire State Development) and Bernie Anger (General Manager of Control and Communication Systems for GE Intelligent Platforms). Ed Reinfurt’s keynote address was called “The Role of CATs in the State and Nation’s Innovation Agenda for Manufacturers.” The title of the keynote address presented by Bernie Anger was “Automation in the Age of Cloud Computing.”

This successful meeting was well attended and had many excellent poster presentations on CAMP research. The posters were judged in three categories: most attractive, most creative, and best overall. Certificates and ribbons were presented by Dr. Terry Leib (Technology Director, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, GE Global Research) to the first, second, and third place winners of each category. The judges were Dr. Matthew Wagner of Pall Corporation, Dr. Keith Redford of Conpart, Todd Berger of Dentsply, and Daniel Henkel of Saint-Gobain. The winners are listed on the right.
